Where did the name “The Crofoot” come from?
The building that houses the Crofoot Ballroom was built in 1830 and stands as the oldest commercial building in Oakland County. In 1880, the building was renovated by an Oakland county Judge named Michael E. Crofoot. We kept the historic name.

Generally, opening bands will play 30-45 minute sets beginning one hour after doors open (i.e. if doors open at 8:00 pm, the first at band will likely go on at 9:00 pm). However, all shows are subject to different schedules.

Which door do I use?
Crofoot Ballroom/The Pike Room: watch for signs – the Crofoot has five different entry points, each for a different room. Traditionally, the entrance for shows in the Crofoot Ballroom is located East of Saginaw on PIKE STREET (the doors are painted red!) and the entrance for shows scheduled in the Pike Room is located on Saginaw Street south of Pike (which will be marked with a sign).
Crofoot Festival Grounds: the front gate is located at the southeast corner of Pike St at Saginaw St, directly across from The Crofoot Ballroom. It is essentially half the surface parking lot fenced in. It’s hard to miss.
